Poetry Roundup #2: A Blue Dancer and a Walk in the Rain

Poem: "Blue…Blue will dance anew / a long, slow ballet/so awkward to view. / Blue…Blue will dance. It’s true, / spinning through life / one day to renew.

“The Blue Dance”

This poetry roundup features two original artworks. The first one is a poem inspired by the 70’s song “Love is Blue” by Paul Mauriat (the words of the poem actually can go in time with part of the chorus). The art is a charcoal and soft pastel piece.



Haiku: "Walking, right here, right now. / Rain falls in the moment then. / Where does the time go?" (by Brenna Vancheyson)

“Walking Right Here” (a Haiku)

This haiku is paired with an acrylic painting on canvas. It can be about a simple walk in the rain to pass time or about the swift passage of time on a more philosophical level, if the rain is “the moment” that disappears once it hits the ground.

“This Season, 2020” (a Poem)

For some this year, it will be easier to be thankful.
Thankful that no one they know or love has perished.
Thankful that things might get better.
Thankful that they still have a job.
Yet for others, it will be more difficult,
suffering for one of the reasons above…
or one of a million others.
Perhaps the greatest gift we can give this season is compassion.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Because for some, that’s what will be needed the most.
